I like the top left corner logo as it resembles the old R logo with a little add-on (the B) which can stand for Re-Born.

all the other designs are cool too. it's good to have different versions to keep the product fresh.

I'm more than impressed. The OSEG is doing things right.

Glen, I saw the unveiling on CFL.ca yesterday. Although I didn't like the name at first, after I heard how they chose it, I'm OK with it. :beauty:

I love the logo and the choice to stick with the historical red and black for the uniforms. I can't wait to see how the jerseys look. I'll have to add one to my collection for sure. :D

And once Ottawa comes back in 2014, they will be one of my favorites again. :beer:

Awesome Stan! So good to hear,
I like the name, and the history, how much more could they honour the history than with that name?

I absolutely love the logo! It is awesome!
There's a poll right now on cfl.ca about the logo whether you like it or not, it's at 56% like! Which I think is great, because I bet there's fans of other teams that would vote no regardless of what it is other than their own

BTW, The event yesterday was so impressive, this OSEG is doing things right. I couldn't believe how well done this was, there was no where the effort for anything that was for Renegades like what I saw yesterday.

we were tailgating befoer the game and had the tents and flags up, along with our CFL beerpong table and who do we see coming walking over? Mark Cahon, and we got a bunch of pictures, and he tweeted it,

I'm really optimistic about this time around in Ottawa, as Glenegade said, OSEG are doing things right. Ya there is a lot of negativity surrounding the name, I personally don't think it's that bad, not my favourite name in the world but doesn't matter to me, the only thing that counts is football is back in Ottawa! I saw the pic from Cohon's twitter page, cool stuff, I wonder when a new fan site will pop up to replace renegadenation.com?

It's Redblacks people. I saw the reaction from people on the CBC sight, and thought Canada, Ottawa. and even North America itself, might fall.
I don't mind it. I might buy some swag.
Lets move on.
Redblacks, Rouge et noire. Right on!!

Super stoked on Ottawa getting a team again! Been going to games since I was 5. The name RedBlacks is absolutely terrible!! Article stating Jeff Hunt met some dude at a party who suggested Red and Blacks years ago leads me to believe that the public polling was a shame.
Enough of the rant, I'll get getting season tix, and sporting the red and black colours...Rough Rider colours, but red and black all the same

I was right there when it happened, it was my friend Alex's idea. I think the name is ok, but there is several names I would have picked before it.

I think the contest was a legitimate attempt, just that there was no one preferred name that was coming up over and over again, Point is, Saskatchewan is to blame the Rough Riders would have been the only accepted name some guy said to me the other day RedBlacks is stupid, and I said, ya that's fine, but do you have a solution for a name? He said ya for sure! They should call them the Fusion! That is so bad...

Likafkinnija? What do think would have been better? And just to be clear I'm not asking to defend the name,

What will Ottawa fans actually call them? Will the chant be "Let's go Riders!"?
